sweet aren't they...
(things I'm head-over-heels for at the mo)
This little shelf
surreptitiously picked up from the verge when I droppped off my daughter at a friend's...she would've been mortified if said friend had seen me. Ha-ha!
It was, however, a risk I was willing to take.
Honestly, would you have driven past and left it behind (for someone else to nab?) I. Don't. Think. So.
Anyway, the phrase "Mum, you're soooooooo embarrassing!" is frequently uttered round these parts. I'm used to it. Water off a duck's back etc. I can think of worse ways to be embarrassed by your Mum, can't you?
One day I would like my new little shelf to be crammed with lovely Ladybirds and nothing else. This could take some time though as these little books are tricky to find here. Its taken me over a year just to find the ones you see!
Yesterday I was thrilled to find Cub Scouts and Do You Know? at our local Vinnies, so they're out there, somewhere...I just have to hunt them down!
Pilates, me hearties
I started Pilates almost a month ago and although I do NOT look as glamorous as Roberta (far from it in fact!) I do love it.
p.s. I want a leotard just like Roberta's.
With a frill.
I'm also loving this pile of books from the library
my NEW SPECS
so I can read them without squinting!
(can't believe I put it off for so long!)
Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum')
especially when you've been told "nothing will grow in that spot!" ummmmmm, Hello???

I also think it's a wonder of nature that this blog has one hundred and sixty nine followers! A wonder, and wonderful.
Thank you to you all.
